Content panel

 

Mario Legacy is an avid fan site dedicated to the Super Mario series. We offer a ton of info, but unlike other sites, we also offer a lot of media. We have our own custom Wallpapers, as well as our highly regarded Comic Series and much more. We're also different in the idea that the amount of visits do not matter to us, but instead, the site itself and the community are more important.

Mario Legacy was started on July 22, 2006 and has continued to grow since then. We started off on a blank slate - no content, no media, no nothing. Our first month or so wasn't so bad, we had a good amount of content added by then. We launched with Version 1, which was a gray, blue, and green mix.

Soon after, the first Message Board was added. It's still up today and hasn't had any downtime at all. It grew slowly at first, but it has had its spurts since then. The months came going by, and by about or 4 month of existence, a major change came.

Elemental Desires hit the scene. "Elemental Desires" is actually a name of Version 2. It was a major step up from Version 1, with a new look that is still our most popular today. Elemental Desires saw a nice growth of content, but it didn't bring us to the level where we hoped we'd be. The Message Board at this time saw it's most growth, expanding over 175 members.

Elemental Desires saw the addition of a few major things: The Mario Encyclopedia, our own Comic Series, Wallpapers, and Character Profiles. It's true, each section really hasn't been worked on, but we started it with the idea of a project that will be done later on. The Comic Series was great for the site, because it's different than other comics: It uses Mario sprites, but each sprite is a member of our Message Board. It's a great way to interact with our biggest fans and supporters.

The biggest thing that we started was the Wii Drive 2006. In this, we collected donations for kids at a hospital. Well, it didn't go so well - we didn't get a whole lot. It's because at the time, we were still a new and small site. We're not entirely sure if the Wii Drive will be back in 2007, we'll just have to wait and see.

A new addition to the duet of sites came as well: Smrpgsequel.com. It's a site dedicated to getting a true sequel to Super Mario RPG. It was put up at this time, but no real work was done when some should have been. Unfortunately, this idea and cause has not really gone well.

Our first real problem hit towards the end of Elemental Desires. Well, actually, it wasn't towards the end of it, but it more or less caused it to be the end of it. The short version is that we were hacked. Instead of taking it the wrong way, most of us took it as a positive idea: We had arrived becoming big enough to get recognition.

The Serenade of Light redesign came. It was a heavy dosage of Super Mario Bros. 3, similar yet different from Elemental Desires. The only real problem is that the site looks very similar to other sites, which it wasn't meant to be! With the colors, it just happened to be that way.

Right now, we're currently in Serenade of Light. We continue to add content, and we're on a steady fan base. We hope that we will soon reach our ultimate goal and become one of the largest Mario sites out there, a challenge that will be difficult.
